‘Frail’ child predator dies in jail just months into sentence | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

A prolific paedophile convicted of multiple sex crimes against children died a few months after beginning a 12 year jail sentence.

Frail pensioner David Palin, 75, died from a combination of heart disease, pneumonia and cirrhosis of the liver at privately-run HMP Altcourse in Fazakerley on April 22 last year. He had been housed in Altcourse since he was remanded in custody on January 31, 2022, and remained there after he was sentenced on February 2.

A jury at Chester Crown Court had heard Palin, from the Crewe area, molested three female victims who were all under 13 at the time of the abuse. He was convicted after a week long trial of 17 sexual offences, covering a period which began in the early 1970s, when he was in his 20s, through to 2004.

The court heard one of the victims came forward in 2002 but the investigation was closed. However, when two further victims came forward in 2017, the case was reopened by Cheshire Police and a complex and lengthy investigation began.

The circumstances of his death were investigated by the Prison and Probation Ombudsman (PPO), which examines all deaths in custody. Kimberly Bingham, acting PPO, raised concerns in a report published this month about the care Palin, who had multiple conditions including type 2 diabetes and was “doubly incontinent”, received when he became ill in April this year.

According to the report, on April 8, 2022, a prison nurse noticed that Palin’s blood sugar levels were “very high”, and the following day, April 9, a prison GP also recorded high levels.
